When I took up quilting Konaville by hand (my school house quilt) I was worried I'd end up with a hole in the tip of my finger - like you do when you can't get on with a thimble!
So I was alternating between that hand stitching and machine quilting my lovely vintage square quilt - though I've more recently been distracted by Paper Piecing - more on that a bit later....
The vintage square quilt is my current favourite but shhhhh! please don't tell my other quilts as I don't want to put their noses out of joint!
I was delighted to find a lovely backing fabric called Vintage Happy from my good friend Cindy @ Fluffysheepquilting especially as I could pay for it with a winning voucher and my loyalty points! ( Now available with a 15% discount of course)
The quilt back was quickly put together and basted. And I have started quilting it! Just in the ditch at the moment.
Not sure if it needs anything else though....as it is such a busy quilt!
I do think persian rugs may have been an influence in this design...?
And yesterday I was doing this....
Made from a pattern by Kerry for the Sewing Out Loud QAL! Just can't seem to stop paper piecing at the moment...!
